St. Hilda’s Anglican Church
presents “Art in the Narthex”, an exhibition of the Contemplative Art of local artist Paul Gibson. The exhibition will run from Sunday October 9 to November 10, 2011 in the Narthex of the Church. An Artist Reception will be held at 2pm on Saturday October 29 when Paul Gibson will be present to reflect on “Arts and Spirituality.” This is a free exhibition and all are welcome.

Paul Gibson - also known by his Buddhist name Dch. Dayasiddhi - is a Sechelt based artist who, within the beauty and seclusion of the forest, creates art work reflecting his respect and love for the contemplative life. Most recently, Dayasiddhi has concentrated on producing what he calls "Contemplative Art", devotional panels that can be seen as a synthesis of Eastern and Western sacred forms, incorporating universal symbols. "I try to tread a middle path somewhere between not trying to make any profound theological statement, yet avoiding mere decorative whimsy" he says.
